DOXOLOGY II: The Next Chapter in Soul Care
January 27-29, 2020
The Chiara Center, Springfield, IL
Over the last 11 years, grads have routinely requested that a DOXOLOGY II program be created, allowing you to continue the work you began in the three-part Classic Program. We will be building upon the original curriculum and extending the conversation about what it means to be a faithful pastor who cares for the souls of others and one’s self. DOX II will continue the conversation about attentive and intentional soul care we started when you originally enrolled in the Classic Program.
A myriad of competing spiritualities plus the complexity of social and moral confusion pervades the 21st Century world. Human spiritual and emotional health are under increasing pressure, creating a need for pastors who are themselves spiritually and emotionally healthy as well as equipped with new and effective tools to make a difference in the lives of the people they serve. The opportunity to think about these things in the company of your brothers, with skilled facilitators will surely be a blessing for you and those whom you serve.
DOXOLOGY II is a one-part program (tentative schedule below). We will return to the retreat features which were so well received in DOX I (the Classic Series). We’ll employ a similar pattern of presentations, collegial conversation, worship and fellowship.
The Presenters for DOX II are familiar to you. The featured speaker will be Rev. Dr. John Kleinig, master teacher, author, and pastor to pastors, from Adelaide, Australia. Additional presenters include Rev. David Fleming and Drs. Beverly Yahnke and Gregory Schulz.
Who should attend: DOX II is open to grads of any DOXOLOGY Classic Series.
